Listen: Facebook, Barack Obama And Associated Press discussed on Red Eye Radio
"Will it not well there were some? So the these court mandated a deadlines of some filings, and he filed he basically has Friday to until Friday today act on some of the things that the Manafort case, so we'll see what happens there, and if there's anything else related to I guess they've Muller investigation thing that that comes. Of that many people following the Skoda's hearing on double jeopardy this weekend. And as it relates to Manafort the question being if Skoda's does not reverse the double jeopardy. Exemption which came from Scotus in terms of the sovereignty of states allowing different jurisdictions to have their own charges for the same crime. That's up as a federal jurisdiction does. And then they wouldn't then then if they don't reverse that then the point being Manafort gets pardoned by the president, theoretically for the federal crimes. What about state crimes could he's still? And I don't know. Because every article I read maybe there's there that I didn't read. But I don't know specifically what they're talking about in the metaphor case. What this precise charge would be. Yeah. I don't I don't know. I've read that. And we have the whole discussion on double jeopardy earlier in the show. Well, Nancy Pelosi said that no no chance of building the wall. And that's talking to go through the house. We knew that already. You're not going to see any wall built in the next two years where we tried to figure out what kind of a deal that he could get with the Democrats to to do that in the only thing that we could figure out as if he said, okay, I'll agree to amnesty and citizenship for everybody else for everybody who's in the country. Then the Democrats some Democrats might agree to do it. I don't even know if you get all Democrats aboard on on on that one. But we discussed her using the term that that the wall is immoral and we're just having a discussion about that saying, okay, defined that the walls immoral then is the wall that is up now immoral the walls had already exist. That exists right? The the barriers that a exists. The checkpoints. That exists. The fact that you have. Border patrol agents that will chase you down and arrest. You just what precisely is immoral about Trump's wall is that the fact is a wall moral when it doesn't work is a barrier. Moral when it doesn't work is a barrier. Immoral when it does work exactly what does that mean? Now, the interesting thing is. As we were talking about that. I was scrolling down in the Facebook newsfeed. Right. And this is the first time I've seen this. Facebook friend of mine from post from late November got into a discussion here in the last couple of hours with with somebody else, and they were arguing the whole teargassed thing again. Right. Do the Obama administration used tear gas? And so I'm just going down in reading at Saint. Wow. This is this this was a few weeks ago. But interesting to see that it's being brought up again. So I finished that story on the news feed. And I look right beneath it and right beneath it is a related article. And it's the Associated Press fact, check under just a, you know, a private post is take this wasn't. This isn't somebody who is a. A. Celebrity? This isn't just a regular guy who's posting right right beneath his post is Associated Press. Fact, check did Obama used tear gas at the first time I've seen that that a first time I've seen them not someone in your news feed one of your friends posting the story, but basically Facebook putting it up. Yes. As they related story in your new to my Facebook friends now he had he did have a story from the Washington Times. There was the story from the Washington Times that he was highlighting. And then all the comments in it. And then right beneath it related article to that post, which was an Associated Press fact, check did Obama used tear-gas. I that's the first time I've seen that. I know they say they were going to fact check, and I was thinking to myself. Well, how are they gonna do that? Right. And were they going to fact check is it just for example. Let's say hypothetically. Oh, I don't know. And Coulter put something on Facebook will only be celebrities or people that they know are they going to jump to fact, check anybody on Facebook of the billions of bows of anybody who posts are they going to attempt to fact check, and it's got to be an algorithm does picks up on it. Probably in the Washington Times story. Because are they building the algorithm to automatically fact, check things from certain sources, like Fox News in Washington Times, a great point which lean right? They see someone posts something from Fox News. And then all of a sudden, the algorithm detects that, and then they fact check it. If there is a fact checking story related to the same topic, and the algorithm just picks up on it and puts it in. This is the dangerous part of while. It's not it's not dangerous because Facebook can do whatever they want. But but but it becomes dangerous. When people believe that Facebook that and I think Zuckerberg the whole the whole critical analysis of what what did they know about the Russians influencing the election through Facebook the posts? Well, that was taken to a larger extent the response was. Not really related to that. As it was this this foreign outside influence, and we always said, well, so what is the content of the message? If you tell me, that's, you know, the former President Barack Obama bought an ostrich farm and Oklahoma. Then I'm going to go really, and I'm gonna I'm gonna Google that right away to see if it's true. I mean, it's about the content of and I'm not saying he would be a bad ostrich. Ostrich farmer."
